i guess if your company puts me on a plane for free, I'd have to do it, now wouldn't I?

Well, I wouldn't want you to do it out of obligation.

First, you should find a good local pub. Have you?

Kinda-sorta. Old Chicago is a chain but they have 100+ beers, some on tap, some bottles - and the food is tasty. There is one next to the client site that I'd had lunch at a few times, and I just had dinner at one near my hotel. There is also a brew pub/restaurant, Upstream Brewing, where I had dinner the other night.

But I've been working such long hours that it has been pretty much hotel to client to hotel, sometimes stopping for dinner on the way back to the hotel.

One of my friends goes out to Omaha regularly for business (he and his friends there have a recurring dinner meeting called "Omaha Beach Party.") Want me to put you two in touch?

Thanks, but I really should be coming home Monday... I hope.

I'll gladly re-arrange my schedule to devote myself to house sitting and the care and feeding of your DVD collection. And the Charger.

I am that kind of selfless.

Sorry to hear, but I know the feeling.
Something similar happened to me in Dayton, OH,
of all places, last January for a government client gig.
Luckily there was a con going in Cleveland, so I
wasn't all SOL.. but man, Dayton wasn't the hippest
place I've been to... and going out alone in a strange
town is always kinda bizarre, considering the
fact that I don't really blend in, y'know... :)

Yeah, you might not look like one of the locals in middle America. ;-)

It is looking like I will be going home tomorrow (Monday), it'll be nice to sleep in my own bed again.
